"In Spring 2016, I began to work with Executive Language Consultants (ELC) to bring my basic French skills back to life. I studied intensive conversational French in the late 1980s but only became functionally bilingual. Nearly 30 years later and not using what I learned, my skills had nearly all but evaporated. Wanting to engage better with my French colleagues, I decided to secure the services of a one-on-one executive tutor to refresh and expand my French abilities. Accommodating my busy travel schedule, ELC was extremely flexible in booking my classes. We tried to meet for 90 minutes each week and the instructor was able to adjust my training to incorporate the level of my previous French training. For the few years that I worked with ELC, I always had the same instructor which provided a great level of continuity in my training. During our conversations, my instructor became familiar with my industry and was able to help with business related vocabulary. We also discussed current and casual topics providing for a well-rounded level of conversational ability. And, of course, we spent some time at each lesson focusing on grammar, use of proper tenses and some French phrases. The learning environment was very relaxed and casual. My instructor made me more confident to use French in a business setting and helped me improve each week. She made the learning fun and I always look forward to our lessons. I would strongly recommend using ELC for anyone looking for one-on-one executive French training."
